Chart House Restaurant - Alexandria
The meal was wonderful, but our table was badly situated in a high-traffic areas, so it wasn't as quiet as I'd like. We also had a long wait for our food.
Absolutely awesome service from Cassandra and delicious and fresh food! Great time had by all!!
The food and service was amazing, I would definitely recommend this restaurant
Did not receive the a table in the area I requested. We were put in the main room and were surrounded by several intoxicated loud groups. This made it very difficult to enjoy our anniversary dinner(which is why I had requested to be in the quiter section of the restaurant when I placed my reservation.) We have always come here for our anniversary as well as several other occasions since we live in Old Town but I feel we will probably need to find another restaurant to celebrate.
Over priced. Quality not good. I’ve been sick since we ate there.
Thank you Chart House for the amazing service and delicious food! Beautiful view from our upstairs table. The personal touches you did, personalized menu and birthday card, were appreciated so much!!! Our waitresses were very attentive, friendly and completely on top of EVERYTHING!
We had a special night out and have always liked the Chart House. We were grateful to get a table by the window. Unfortunately it took one hour from the time we sat down until we got our food (and there was no delay in ordering). (We had 5:30pm reservations.) 2 of the 3 meals came out hot, 1 was barely warm. It took awhile to get a waiter's attention (not even our waiter). They replaced the meal quickly, which was appreciated. I was surprised no manager came over to apologize or check in with us. You'd expect this at a restaurant of this level, price range, and reputation. Our waiter was nice, but did not check back often (which explains the delay in getting our meal fixed when we realized there was an issue. ) For the price, it shouldn't have been this aggravating. It also took a significant time to get our check. Either hire more waiters, or better train the ones you have.
The location is a given and we were seated at a window with a great view of the Potomac as requested, but to top it all off, we had the most engaging, fun and service-oriented waiter, Andres. The whole experience was perfect as we traveled to Alexandria for a reunion with our daughter at college.
I had the New York strip with a king crab leg add on. My wife had the lobster tail. We thought everything was absolutely delicious. But the absolute delight was the chocolate lava cake. No words to describe it other than we were both completely full from dinner and ate every bite of that dessert. Wow!
I used the warmth and location of the Chart House as the perfect setting to propose marriage to me fiancé. She was totally surprised and elated. She said “YES”. That made my day and set into motion countless lasting memories. Thank you Chart House.
Good and nice view but lets the honest, the Potomac isn’t a gorgeous body of water by any means.
Food was good but not for the price
Excellence service- could not be beat! But food was not worth the money. Great view of the water; come here for drinks instead of dinner.
Excellent food and service! Great location with awesome views
This was an excellent restaurant with exceptional views. The service was great and made for an exceptional dining experience.
Always a great experience. Fresh Seafood and great food.
I’ve taken my partner here for his birthday twice. He really enjoys the food
The food was good and the service was excellent.
My order was taken incorrectly and my girlfriend's came out overcooked but they happily and quickly fixed both and both meals were terrific.
The Chart House in Alexandria is starting to show that it's a chain.
I do not mind paying for a quality experience, but the food is just okay and doesn't justify the prices. I have noticed this slide for about 8 years now.
Ambience in this restaurant is fine but not particularly outstanding - I realize there's nothing they can do about the view of the DC Waste Management Facility.
The service is the best part about this place. It was excellent, and if our dinner had been equal in quality I would be a five star reviewer. Such was not the case, unfortunately.
Chart House is one of the very best restaurants in Alexandria. We have always had a wonderful time and meal at the restaurant.
The Chart House, though a little expensive is a very nice restaurant in a nice location. The service is always excellent and the food is very good with new items depending on the season. The portions are plentiful as well.
The food was great as usual...but the service was terrible and we waited 15 minutes even though we had a reservation.
GREAT SERVER! GREAT FOOD, GREAT VIEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James was the perfect Server! Excellent food, impeccable service! Not quite the Weehawkin experience however, the view was spectacular!
Although it was lunch time, we were able to order the blackened fish from the dinner menu. It was looked perfectly and my out of town guests enjoyed their meal thoroughly.
I got the Caesar Salad with blackened salmon and it was delicious. My husband got the trout with coconut rice and vegetables...also wonderful. We splurged and got the Crab Tots - yummy! It was a beautiful day on the Alexandria waterfront. Overall it was very enjoyable!!
Great restaurant with great service, friendly waiters and staff and a wonderful view of Old Town Wharf
The food was delicious and the service was pretty good. Server was good but the food took a bit long to come out. This small detail is compensated by the atmosphere and the beautiful views from the huge windows around the dining area. We had a great time and will certainly be back.
Celebrating my husband’s birthday. Perfect!!!
Salad bar was fresh, entree was tasty and well portioned.
I love how chart house made it personal for my son's bday by having personalized menu and a bday card.
Great ambience and I appreciated the low noise level, which made conversation easy. But the $19 salad bar was a ripoff, and when the waitress came by and asked if we liked everything I said no, I wasn't happy with the sopu, but she didn't apologize or offer a substitution.
Excellent Service from the hostess to the waiter. The only issue (and it is specific to this visit) was that the fire alarm went off and it took an inordinate amount of time for them to shut it down, thus, it was annoying for a bit of time.
Great location and ambiance, very helpful and knowledgeable servers, outstanding seafood. Filet Mignon was properly prepared and fair to good, but not at the same level of those we've had at comparable restaurants. Sides and dessert were very good. Overall, we were pleased and had a good time, and would definitely recommend Chart House to others, particularly if they're looking for a pleasant evening and good seafood.
Food and service were excellent. Would highly recommend the Chart House to other diners either for lunch or dinner.
I took one of my largest customers here for dinner this week and it was by far one of the absolute best seafood restaurants that I have visited. The hostess and waiters were extremely nice and courteous, the service was wonderful, and the food was excellent. There were eight in my party and everyone complimented their meal and was very satisfied with the evening.
Good coconut shrimp. Service was a bit slow.
Spring Break Visit with 12 and 14 year old daughters
